The North Richmond Mobile Tool Library was created in part to support volunteer-based beautification projects in North Richmond. Collaborations with other organizations with the help of volunteers allow us to take part in and/or host events that accomplish what we all want: a cleaner place to live!
Upcoming Projects & Events:
We are gearing up for Coastal Clean-Up Day, in partnership with The Watershed Project and other collaborators! Meet us in front of Verde Elementary School on September 24, 2022 at 9:00 AM for beautification projects at two locations in North Richmond: Wildcat Creek and 1943 6th Street!
Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty. The North Richmond Mobile Tool Library will provide tools and lunches for volunteers! Register here! We hope to see you there!
North Richmond Earth Day events on April 22 and 23, 2022 included Verde Safe Route to School's Community Clean-up event! This was also the beginning of the North Richmond Mobile Tool Library's Soft Launch! A collaboration with Urban Tilth, The Watershed Project, and North Richmond Green led to this 2-day clean-up of Giaramita St and the nearby creek, as well as beautiful stencil art leading from Verde Elementary School to Shields-Reid Community Center.
Our First Community Clean-Up
The North Richmond Mobile Tool Library hosted our own clean-up event! On Saturday, June 11, 2022, 23 volunteers came together and removed trash, debris, and weeds from Contra Costa County Housing Authority Properties. We ended up with 27 full bags of trash! The Richmond Fire Department also had a team stop by to help us in our event!
